Arturo Berned: Participation in the first Art Marbella event
The work of the artist Arturo Berned is to have a major presence at the Art Marbella (Malaga) event. This is the first exhibition to bring together 50 top level national and international galleries. At this debut event, the Madrid sculptor will contribute with ten of his works, two of which will welcome visitors from their location at the entrance to the Marbella Conference and Exhibition Centre. These two monumental sculptures entitled ´Cabeza XVI (2013) and Cabeza I (2012) transform the space which surrounds the visitor to the exhibition. Their imposing presence in stainless steel is a fine example of the portfolio of Arturo Berned. Vigorous, tidy and limpid volumes where the metal is twisted until it finds its own logic.
As a means towards the understanding of his work, the Daniel Cardani gallery is exhibiting eight items by Arturo Berned which are examples of his four best known series of work: Cabeza, Vacío, Máscara and Caja. Entering into greater detail, the visitor will find in Cabeza II (2010), Vacío III (2012), Caja XXXVIII (2012), Cabeza XVII (2013), Cabeza X (2014), Cabeza XVI (2014), Cabeza XVIII (2015) and Máscara (2015), a three year journey through the work of the artist which serve as a means of making an in-depth appraisal of his creative universe.
For five days between the 30th of July and the 3rd of August, Marbella will become a reference point for the art world. The organisers point out that this is the first major art fair in the Mediterranean which is all thanks to a balanced mix of the work of rising artists with that of the classic names of the 20th century along with artists who are in the midst of their career.
The fair is to have specific sections under the care of independent curators along with a fascinating programme of parallel activities organised by the Contemporary Arts Centre of Malaga (CAC) and other local museums to which entrance is free and all over a timetable scheduled in accordance with the summertime. From 6.00 to 10.30 in the evening. We will be expecting you.
